Ensemble: NEC Wind Ensemble

Conductors: Boyang Yu, Charles Peltz, Mark Scatterday

Artists: Bob Logan (Piano), Karen Holvik (Soprano)

From the ceremonial fanfares of the Renaissance to the firebrand composers of today, wind ensemble concerts can blow through the centuries in a single evening.

Tonight, Charles Peltz leads the NEC Wind Ensemble in a suite of songs based on poems by Leopoldo Lugones, Rubén Darío, and José Martí, with NEC voice chair Karen Holvik as soloist. Peltz hands the baton over to conducting student Boyang Yu and guest Mark Scatterday - Peltz's counterpart at the Eastman School of Music - for the remainder of the program.
